          Good Company
          For anyone into history, politics or architecture then Washington DC is amazing and definitely worth a tour. You can be lucky or unlucky with your tour guide and unfortunately for us our tour guide was not good. However I think she was the exception, and not the rule, for this company. The company took our feedback under careful review and after the trip I received a heartfelt apology from the daughter of the owner and rectified the situation. The guide is no longer part of the company and this incident not repeated.

          Amazing Experience!!
          Best money ever spent on a tour. Helga was so amazing and knowledgeable about everything related to Washington DC! She explained everything so well and made sure we had plenty of time to spend at each stop. She was right on time to pick us up at our hotel and dropped us off when finished. Helga made sure to connect with us on a personal level rather than just telling us what was needed to know. She asked questions and genuinely cared about our answers. We asked her questions and she was very happy to answer them. It was extremely hot and humid in the city, but Helga made sure we were nice and cool and had enough water. I would HIGHLY recommend this company for anyone looking for an easy and comfortable way to see all of the monuments and buildings in DC.

          The perfect DC tour
          It was amazing. Very knowledgable, explained all details about the city, visiting all monuments and historical places. Awesome trip and perfect company. I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a private tour to see and experience the city in a day. Mishelle and Victor are amazing and professional. We all linked Leo and spent a nice day with him.

          Must See DC
          I have been to DC several times in my lifetime (50+) years. Hadn’t been there in 20+ years and needed to be a tourist again. Viktor and Continental City Tours made our experience perfect! I use a manual wheelchair and Viktor made it so easy to get in and out of the vehicle and made sure I was able to see all that there was to see! His knowledge of DC is incredible, and you can tell that he truly wants his clients to enjoy their tour. The four hours went by quickly and at a very comfortable pace. Highly recommend this your! Enjoy the $20 dollar bill history lesson...!

          Allan picked us up at our hotel. Our ride was a beautiful black Lincoln Town care. All first asked what was important for us to see and he made sure we got an up close look at the places most important to us. than he added a few extra stops that were amazing! It wasan incredible 3 hour tour and so worth the money! Highly recommend Allan!

          Private and personable tour
          First off I want to say that Victor is amazing. He is so knowledgeable about DC that I felt like I know a lot more about DC than before. I love this tour because it's very personable. I booked a private tour for my family and they couldn't help but rave how awesome the private tour was and how amazing Victor was. He showed us so much stuff and told us so much history about each place he took us. For anyone going to DC, this is a must do! Thanks Victor for all the history info and for the great transportation service!

          We had a great experience with Isaias this morning. He was so good at explaining everything that the kids loved the history and explanations. The car was amazing, clean and very comfortable. He took us everywhere and gave us some hints about this city. I’d highly recommend this guided tour and Isaias.

          Amazing Spanish Speaking Tour
          We book this tour because we needed to have a Spanish-speaking tour guide for my in-laws. A fantastic decision! Our tour guide, Isaias, was incredible. So professional, well spoken, polite, and a good driver. He knew so much about the city and all the best places to go. I definitely recommend this tour company for anyone wanting to know more about Washington DC and is looking for a Spanish-speaking tour guide.

        While I rarely take guided tours particularly at this price point, this was hands-down an incredible experience that was worth every penny and then some. We got a full city overview in our four hour time-slot which whetted our appetite to go see key sites in more detail. Helga is an amazing tour guide while navigating the city streets and traffic seamlessly. The value of being chauffeured in luxury from site to site, able to hop out at the curb and go see a memorial while our guide waits at the curb with special city/police permission to do so cannot be overstated. It's especially valuable for anyone who has an injury or mobility issues, or when it's pouring rain as it was during our tour. Communication before and at pickup was responsive and clear. We drove to meet our guide; parking and pick-up were very easy on a Saturday morning at the recommended spot near the Pentagon.

        Spectacular!!!!!
        Trust me, there is nothing better that this tour in Washington DC. This was our family first visit to DC and we decided to stay for 1 week on New Year’s Eve and booked a city tour with this company. Victor is well educated, knowledgeable, extremely nice person. He can talk to you in many languages; he talks and talks explaining and describing everything; he has the ability to make the tour interesting for every age group, including young kids. Very friendly and accommodating with wherever you want to go or whatever you want to see. We were so impressed that after doing the day tour, booked also the night tour with him days later. Impressive!!! If you are visiting Washington DC, this tour is a must. Thank you Victor.

        Worth every single penny! With 3 kids in tow, I didn’t want to join a massive bus tour that was 8 hours long. I found this guided tour and decided it would be perfect for our family. They picked us up right on time, got us to all the monuments and things we wanted to see. Never made us feel rushed and giving lots of detailed info about each of the monuments along the way. I felt like we were riding around DC with knowleable family/friends who were just showing us around the city. It was FANTASTIC!

        First and foremost shout out to our tour guide Isabella! She was very kind, knowledgeable, prompt, and maintained a clear line of communication prior to our pick up.

        Isabella took my lovely date and I all around D.C informing us on the rich history the area has to offer. She’s an excellent driver and maintained a cool vibe. When booking Request the best tour guide in DC, Isabella.

        I also recommend taking this tour at night, very romantic, less crowded monuments, well lit and aesthetically pleasing.

        Cannnot say enough great things about our experience. Victor is a font of knowledge, and willing shared it all, and he was able to drop us off almost directly on top of each site. Very little distance to travel to the monument/building, etc which was really great since we had 3 children and my 90 year old mother with a walker and wheelchair with us.
        The van was perfect for getting her in and out, steps that drop down every time the door opens, and Victor maneuverd her in and out better than we do! He took it all in stride like it was nothing and made her feel great about herself.
        The touring plan he has is perfect and we enjoyed every minute of it. Thank you!

        Louie was there right on time as promised and even modified our route according to our requests (we wanted to catch the cherry blossoms on the Tidal Basin before the sun set). A great night and everyone felt it was well worth it! It's also nice to see the monuments without walking the whole time. Being off your feet in the van between sites was great. Night is also the best time to see the monuments. Not only are the museums closed at night (or in our case we had day meetings), but the monuments are stunning at night!

        My wife and I took our middle school-aged granddaughter to D C (her choice) for her 'Historical' trip. We were looking for one where our guide could describe the city and it's sights in an interesting way, both at the student and adult levels. Our guide, Cliff, provided a wealth of interesting knowledge about the city, the area and the many monuments and sights. You can customize your trip a bit if you want to, which we did. I would highly recommend this tour for anyone wanting good general knowledge of the area before exploring on their own.

        This was worth the money. We only had one full day in DC. So, we decided to do the private Washington DC Tour. You are picked up at your hotel than sit back for a very informative four-hour tour. Because it is private my wife and I, we had an opportunity to customize what we wanted to see and we saw it all. Our tour guide dropped us at key locations for short walking tours waiting for us when we returned. It was an exceptional experience, don't miss it. Steve and Cindy Oregon
